What To Expect

Make your way to your traditional bakery in the heart of Paris, where you'll go into the kitchens for a behind-the-scenes lesson to learn the secrets of French bread.
A Parisian baker guides you through the lesson, during which you'll make two different kinds of baguettes as well as buttery, flaky croissants. Watch as your instructor demonstrates the proper techniques for preparing and handling dough, and then try your hand at recreating what you've just seen — with help as you need it. As you watch and work, listen to your instructor's tips to glean the secrets of French baking.
The pay-off for all your hard work is in taking your own freshly-baked baguette out of the oven and tasting it while it's still warm. When the workshop is finished, you'll have a baguette to take with you for a later picnic, as well as the recipes and know-how to recreate the experience in your own kitchen at home.

Amazing 2 hours with the master chef of the bakery! Through an English speaking interpreter, he shared his passion and methods of making bagettes and croissants. It was an incredible experience that we would highly recommend.

Chef Didier is wonderful! We enjoyed the class baking different types of baguettes, watching how to make croissants and puffed pastries. Overall a very enjoyable experience and the bread was fantastic!

This tour STINKS! There is no baking involved. You stand around for over 2 hours while a translator explains how to bake bread. There is no hands on activity. My granddaughter was so disappointed as she was so looking forward to really baking. They shared ONE croissant amongst the 6 people in the class and gave us a loaf of bread not very good that we put in the oven. Awful, Awful, Awful

Great information but was not worth the price. We got a chance to scored some dough for baguettes and rolled some chocolate croissants.

This was one of the highlights of our visit in Paris. Oh what fun it was! Started off in the basement where we learned how to make baguettes which we also got to take with us! and then upstairs to try our hand at croissants. Highly recommend!

If you are looking to do something different, then this will be perfect. Get a great insight insight into the workings of real life French bakery. Eating what you make is also pretty cool.

Absolutely outstanding. I went with my 9 year old daughter and she was the only child at the workshop. Didier included her in everything and helped her out with the hands on work, he was really amazing and patient with her. I thoroughly enjoyed it myself and would totally recommend. The lovely translator did a fabulous job too. Thanks so much, one of our Paris highlights.
